Alas no, two vignettes are needed.

All about Austrian ones

Austrian Vignettes

and Slovenian:

Slovenian tolls

Edit: If your van weighs more than 3500kg then note that each country has a slightly different system.

We've not had to buy a Slovenian one, Les, ( as we went in 2007) but we found no problems buying Austrian ones. They are available at service stations. You don't actually have to have one if you plan a route that does not use motorways but motorways do make life easier in places and even one short trip on one means a vignette is needed.

If you have plenty of time before your trip then I'd be tempted to buy them before you go and save yourself the bother of buying them when you get there.

One other thing Les, if you plan to go via Germany, then you might need or want to buy, one of these:

Umwelt Plakett

They are mainly necessary if you visit cities but some aires are in cities and the number of towns and cities that require you to have one is increasing.

Once you've stuck one on your van then it is there for the life of the van and doesn't need renewing. We bought our last one in Cologne, it cost about 5 euros, and was very quick and straightforward to do once we'd found the correct place to buy it. When next we go, with our current van, we will buy one online beforehand via the people mentioned in the webpage. It's a bit Catch22: you should not drive into the city without one but you can't always buy one until you have parked in the city...

For various reasons we travelled to Croatia via France, Italy and Slovenia earlier this year.

The traffic on the cross Italy autostarda was horrendous with long lines of lorries nearly all the way. When we go again we'll stick to our normal route through France, Germany, Austria and Slovenia.

We bought our Slovenian vignettes from a small newsagent type shop at the border both going out and coming back with no problem at all. We bought 2 weekly vignettes as we were only staying for 3 weeks and they worked out cheaper than the monthly one.
